Call for Papers for UG journal

The Paper Shell Review, the University of Maryland's only undergraduate journal of essays on literary topics, is now accepting submissions. The journal's first issue was published with an introduction by Michael Dirda, a Pulitzer Prize-winning book critic.

This is a great opportunity for all undergrads to get published and share their work with a larger community. The call for submissions goes out to several universities internationally.

The submission guidelines are below, and a previous issue can be viewed here:

Submissions should only be sent via email and not the website.

The Paper Shell Review Submission Guidelines:

Undergraduate students from any accredited institution of higher education may submit papers to The Paper Shell Review. Submission by a single author should not exceed three essays. E-mail essays as Microsoft Word attachments to Submissions for this year's issue will be accepted until Sunday, February 17, 2013 at 11:59pm.

All papers must be double-spaced, in Times New Roman font, numbered, and formatted with one-inch margins. Papers should not exceed 20 pages, but exceptions may be made for essays of superb quality. Essays must follow the Modern Language Association style guidelines as defined in the MLA Guidelines for Writers of Research Papers (latest edition).

The e-mail body accompanying any paper should include the author's full name, undergraduate institution, current year (freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior), paper title, and contact information (e-mail, phone number, current address, and permanent address). The journal is published in print in April and on-line in May on the UMD English Department website.
